in thread Bailing out when testing

I'm talking about a single test file, so -j is irrelevant here.

Actually it's not how long the test file runs (which is not more than a few seconds), but the amount of diagnostic output that the failures spew. In my particular case I want just the "head" of the diagnostics.

Anyway, thanks for the suggestions.

    If you only want to do this occasionally, why not pipe the output to 'head'?

    for(split(" ","tsuJ rehtonA lreP rekcaH")){print reverse . " "}print "\b.\n";

      Because the diagnostic of the first failed test might take many lines.

      Anyway, McDarren's links give the necessary background information about issues in adding the requested feature. Perhaps I'll use Test::Most.
